Pittsburgh Opera’s 36th annual season-ending fundraising gala, Maecenas XXXVI, is going digital… Join us online this year for our Maecenas Mask-erade, broadcasting on Sunday, June 14th!

You are invited to a completely virtual event that combines many components of in-person Maecenas galas with special surprises we can only bring to you online! Tickets to our full Maecenas Mask-erade Gala at 7:30pm are $25, and are available online. Virtual gala guests will receive a special link to our video Mask-erade via email the day of the event. All content will be available to ticket holders until June 21st.

This evening will feature multiple performances by Pittsburgh Opera’s acclaimed Resident Artists, a video retrospective including long-lost performance footage from deep within Pittsburgh Opera’s archives, plus our annual award ceremony celebrating two very special Pittsburghers.  

Kick the evening off at 7:00pm with a FREE Virtual Red Carpet hosted by syndicated Ask Natalie advice columnist and former editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s SEEN column Natalie Bencivenga. Streaming live on our Facebook page, Natalie will take a look back at the glitz and glamour of past Maecenas galas as we count down to the start of Maecenas XXXVI.

Just because we can’t be together in person doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot to celebrate!
